between them and the obama administration. the contrast becomes part of their posturing. how are we going to approach foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm them and where do you draw the red
. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
question is, is there any answer from the obama administration. >> reporter: they are tackling this head on. they say this is all about politics. ofa does not accept donations from foreign nat nations or any ineligible individual. and the campaign voluntarily goes above and beyond federal election commitments to insure the integrity of fundraising efforts. they request proof of current and a valid u.s. passport. they say it's in order to comply with all federal election laws. martha,. martha: certainly at order odds with that report. thank you very much. bill: fox news alert right now. because there is new evidence we can report that the white house knew the attack on your consulate in benghazi was the work of terrorists long before admitting it to the american people. fox news learning that a top aid to the secretary of state hillary clinton, patrick kennedy is his name briefed congressional aids the day after the attack, september 12th calling it sophisticated and complex. u.s. ambassador chris stevens among four americans killed in the attack on 9/11. a hearing on what happened in bengha
differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
in a second obama administration. he is very much looking forward to this. >> you have been pressing the romney campaign for specifics, today we got one specifics suggesting maybe there would be a cap on deductions at $17,000 for mortgage interest deductions, charitable contributions, that's a pretty specific number, what do you think about that? >> i think that the net result is still the same. that is specific, but he has not told us how he will do that without raising taxes on the middle class. even if you're capping deductions, separating them into different buckets with different caps on them. you're still raising taxes on the middle class. even his own economists that he relies on says you can't cut taxes by $5 trillion out paying for it by cutting deductions for people making $200,000 and less. that's just a fact. you can't do it. even if you close every single deduction for people making over $200,000, or $250,000 for families, you're still a trillion short. so he has to tell us how he will do this without increasing taxes on the middle class. so far the math does not add up.
because this is a good thing for the obama administration. jack welch bei one of those. >> what i would say to those that say that we're cooking the books, first of all, it insults the integrity of the labor department, but secondly, it also means that they're not looking closely enough at the numbers, and typically what happens is that analysts put too much emphasis on the jobs report number. that number by virtue of the way it's collected from some 130,000 establishments and it's done through some by fax machine and others, that number is always going to be very variable. it's much like the adp number that we get earlier than even that number, so it's adjusted up and down every month, and so some months it will be down and adjusted upward, and other months it will be up and adjusted downward. >> it's a balance. >> yes. that's going to happen. but what's interesting is that -- >> tell us real quick what's interesting. >> last month it was adjusted upward, and we would expect it to happen this month. >> it's good news all around. thank you, danny. >> here's what we're working on for thi
years under the obama administration. so, before we chat, mr. stein, i do need to play this follow-up clip, the vice president, you know, coming back and explaining his comment. this was later in asheville. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and that ryan supported. as bill clinton, all they're suggesting now when asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. that's what this is. >> on the flip side, ben, you have the mitt romney secretly taped comments, the 47%, what does he do? what does he need to do to overcome this perception, he's this rich guy out to help the rich? >> first of all, we had lots of very rich presidents who have been helpful. fdr was one of the richest men in the country. his family ate off gold plates. john f. kennedy was one of the very richest people in america. he was a very fine president. the fact that lbj was fantastically rich, a fine president. the fact that they're rich doesn't mean they're bad presidents. not in the slightest. i think mr. romney ha
